Tongue and Groove

The club was displaced by developers in July 2007, but it would take more than a wrecking ball to keep them down.

Their 8,600 square-foot Tongue & Groove is an updated and a larger version of the first, again with two rooms creating two distinctly different environments. We pulled out all the stops to ensure that this Tongue & Groove is bigger, better and more beautiful.

The hydra- plane generator utilizes sophisticated technology to provide smooth and consistent sound throughout the club.18 Torrent X-rays headline the lightshow, with laser, strobes… In 2012, The Joint debuted as a redesign of T&G’s second room. More organic in nature, with reclaimed wood and upcycled materials, this 1500 SF space allows for an alternative musical format and is perfect for smaller private parties. Before dinner, after-dinner and late into the night, Tongue & Groove caters to an upscale crowd that enjoys fashion, music, art and nightlife. Its’ current location – just steps from MARTA and situated between major thoroughfares connecting Midtown and Buckhead –T&G remains a staple on the scene and shall for years to come.
